As the housing is under pressure, some of these projects may not be financially feasible for the builders in due course of time. If these planned number of houses never built, are there any state laws gets kicked in. As I see all these developers still need to go long process to get approved meeting all the conditions. Does RHNA or HCD have any claw back rules if these houses didn't get built in a timely manner ? Is Housing element is just a paper tiger aka plan for the eyes of HCD.

>>Will Village High School be relocated?
Most talk has been Village will be knocked down and rebuilt in roughly the same area, but a 2 story building. There was 'some' talk building Village at the other district lot, but now that is slated for housing. So, it's a 'we shall see' kind of thing.

Thank you Commissioners Balch and Nibert for your thoughtful and through understanding of the issues. And for the support of PUSD and making Pleasanton an affordable place to live for those who work here and contribute so much to our community.

As usual, Commissioner Arkin has little grasp of the issue and tried to please the NIMBY residents by decreasing the density "a little bit." And selling out the very organization, PUSD, that she once represented. Then she caved and voted for the proposal as she would be the only one on record voting against it. At least the rest of the council has good sense not to second the ill conceived Arkin motion.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
